Remote control systems for transmitting push and pull movements in a three-dimensional configuration

meflex controls are very well suited for transmitting push and pull movements in a three-dimensional configuration. meflex controls are the ideal solution in many fields because operation is possible at various power levels, while the end fittings are particularly flexible in design.

mechanical transmitters

mechanical transmitters

 

meflex transmitters can be combined with meflex controls to provide control units specially tailored to the specific field of application. Their robust and well-sealed construction makes them the ideal solution, even under heavy-duty conditions (in the construction vehicle industry) and in difficult operating areas.

HG4 lever

The meflex lever HG4 is qualified as a drive transmitter for tandem rollers. His defined positions for neutral/brake setting and end stop for forward and backward, which can optionally transferred by a proximity switch, guarantees a secured handing with explicit feedback.

HG3 lever

The meflex lever HG3 is qualified as mechanical remote control for all automatic coupling devices in agricultural and forest as well as truck and trailers. Easy and safe coupling is guaranteed by his form-locking notch. He has no resistance to the reset force of the control by his free-movement.

EZ lever

The  meflex EZ – Lever can be used without effects of environmental influences as an drummer control for truck mixer. The self-locking function as well as the switch positions are infinitely adjustable. The double tangent type reaches two switching operations or interlocking processes within one lever movement.

DZ-lever

The meflex DZ – Lever complies the features und applications  of the meflex EZ – Lever. Due to the two independent operating lever handles there are possible two switching or locking operations. The one or two defined switch positions are easy to find due to noticeable notchs. The levers stick in the determined position.
The resetting to the starting position is guaranteed because of the spring return.

ZK lever

The meflex ZK control lever is an extremely durable gear rod lever which can be used to realize long strokes and large transmission powers. Due to numerous options, such as locking positions and spring provisions it can be compiled individually for each application.

US5 lever

The meflex US5 lever is based on the chain-drive principle and, with its robust design and numerous optional features, ideal for use in construction and agricultural machinery. Various optional features, such as e.g. positive notches and adjustable self-locking, mean it can be tailored to perfectly meet the demands of a wide variety of uses.

Z40 lever

The meflex Z40 control lever is a gear rod lever which reachs with his compact constructions a proportionally stroke. Like the Z28 control lever he found also good application in higly stressed smaller machines.

Z28 lever

The meflex Z28 control lever is based on the gear wheel/ gear rod principle which is perfect for using as a gas control lever in extremely claimed smaller machines (such as tampers or vibratory plates) because of it’s compactly and robust construction.
It also is stain-resistant because of it’s sealed construction.

Mechatronical transmitters and electronical components

Mechatronical transmitters and electronical components

So the machines where the products of meflex are in use get more and more complex, they have electronical control units. meflex mechatronics transmitter capture the movement of the handle with Hall-sensors and convert it to a modern CAN-Bus signal, while the handling is still like with conventional meflex transmitters.

 

Mechatronic transmitter

The meflex mechatronic transmitter is a mechanic/electronic traction/brake control lever, which has been developed mainly for the requirements of the building machine industry .
It combines the advantages of the reliable mechanics of our „Transmitter 4“ with the latest standards of the CANBus-Technology.
The driver triggers the control movements via a sturdy mechanism. Sensors take his command in and forward it electronically to the machine.
Depending on its specification, the meflex mechatronic transmitter is suitable for traditional signal transmission as well as for CAN-technology.

 

Z40e transmitter

The Z40e control lever has been developed as a mechanical/electronic variant of the tried and tested very durable meflex Z40 control lever. The Z40e control lever has been designed as a gas controller and can be used for all machines in the construction-building industry.
The contactless and wear-free signal intake is based on the Hall-sensor technique. The signal is being transmitted by a three-conductor wire with a flexible protection tube and high-strength cable gland sealing the interfaces. 
Same as before the driver triggers the control movements via a sturdy mechanism but the Z40e control lever does not forward them mechanically. Sensors take the command in and forward it as analogue signal to the machine control unit.
The pivoting angle of the lever is max ±40°.
Upon request any positions can be fitted with non-positive notches.
An outstanding feature of the Z40e control lever is its small and compact design.

 

HG4e transmitter

The meflex HG4e lever is developed as a drive transmitter for tandem rollers. His defined posi-tions for neutral- / brake setting and end stop for forward and backward, guarantees a secured handing with explicit feedback. The position of the lever is collected contact-free by a hall sensor and exported as an analog voltage signal.

ZKe transmitter

The ZKe control lever has been developed as a mechanical/electronic variant of the tried and tested very rugged meflex ZK control lever. The very diverse application options, e g as gas controller, drive controller or drum controller in concrete-mixer vehicles characterize the ZKe control lever.
The contactless and wear-free signal intake is based on the Hall-sensor technique. The signal is being transmitted by a three-conductor wire with a flexible protection tube and high-strength cable gland to seal the interfaces. 
As opposed to the ZK control lever, the ZKe takes the control movements in by a sensor and transmits them to the machine control unit via an analogue signal.
There are several fitment options. Upon request any positions can be fixed with non-positive notches and arbitrary functions of the switch key can be set at the control handle with input and output signal.
The pivoting angle of the lever is max ±40°.


 

EJS


The Electronic Joystick (EJS) is due to the modular design available from a uniaxial lever up to 360 ° swiveling joystick. Depending on the design of the lever , notches and adjustable self-lockings can be selected.
As optional configurations are e.g. a redundant signal, additional buttons or a customized design as a special grip available. Further configuration options we can be provided by request.
By using the optional MEFLEX CAN box the output signals can be transmitted via standard J1939 or CANOpen.

 

CAN Box

Our CAN box enables the transmission of analog input signals via a CAN-bus to the control unit of your machine. For this, the protocols CANopen or J1939 are available. Our CAN box allows the inclusion of 6 analog sensors uniaxial or biaxial 3 joysticks. When using a redundant signal, the respective connectivity halved. Furthermore, up to 32 buttons can be implemented via a LIN bus connection.
